1991 – Metallica (Black Album)

Metallica (Black Album) (1991)

1. Enter Sandman

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH/HAMMET]

 

Say your prayers little one
Don’t forget, my son
To include everyone

 

Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes

 

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

 

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

 

Something’s wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren’t of snow white

 

Dreams of war, dreams of liars
Dreams of dragon’s fire
And of things that will bite

 

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight

 

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
Off to never never land

 

Now I lay me down to sleep
Pray the lord my soul to keep
If I die before I wake
Pray the lord my soul to take

 

Hush little baby, don’t say a word
And never mind that noise you heard
It’s just the beast under your bed,
In your closet, in your head

 

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

 

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land

 

2. Sad But True

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH]

 

Hey
I’m your life
I’m the one who takes you there
Hey
I’m your life
I’m the one who cares
They
They betray
I’m your only true friend now
They
They’ll betray
I’m forever there

 

I’m your dream, make you real
I’m your eyes when you must steal
I’m your pain when you can’t feel
Sad but true

 

I’m your dream, mind astray
I’m your eyes while you’re away
I’m your pain while you repay
You know it’s sad but true

 

You
You’re my mask
You’re my cover, my shelter
You
You’re my mask
You’re the one who’s blamed
Do
Do my work
Do my dirty work, scapegoat
Do
Do my deeds
For you’re the one who’s shamed

 

I’m your dream, make you real
I’m your eyes when you must stea
L I’m your pain when you can’t feel
Sad but true

 

I’m your dream, mind astray
I’m your eyes while you’re away
I’m your pain while you repay
You know it’s sad but true

 

Hate
I’m your hate
I’m your hate when you want love
Pay
Pay the price
Pay, for nothing’s fair

 

Hey
I’m your life
I’m the one who took you there
Hey
I’m your life
And I no longer care

 

I’m your dream, make you real
I’m your eyes when you must steal
I’m your pain when you can’t feel
Sad but true

 

I’m your truth, telling lies
I’m your reasoned alibis
I’m inside open your eyes
I’m you

 

Sad But True

 

3. Holier Than Thou

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH]

 

No more!
The craps rolls out your mouth again
Haven’t changed, your brain is still gelatin
Little whispers circle around your head
Why don’t you worry about yourself instead

 

Who are you? where ya been? where ya from?
Gossip is burning on the tip of your tongue
You lie so much you believe yourself
Judge not lest ye be judged yourself

 

Holier than thou
You are
Holier than thou
You are

 

You know not

 

Before you judge me take a look at you
Can’t you find somethig better to do
Point the finger, slow to understand
Arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand

 

It’s not who you are it’s who you know
Others lives are the basis of your own
Burn your bridges build them back with wealth
Judge not lest ye be judged yourself

 

Holier than thou
You are
Holier than thou
You are

 

You know not

 

4. The Unforgiven

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH/HAMMET]

 

New blood joins this earth
And quikly he’s subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules

 

With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on he’s known
A vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they’ll take away

 

What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been

 

What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

 

They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same
He’s battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully
That old man here is me

 

What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been

 

What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub the unforgiven

 

You labeled me
I’ll label you
So I dub the unforgiven

 

5. Wherever I May Roam

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH]

 

…and the road becomes my bride
I have stripped of all but pride
So in her I do confide
And she keeps me satisfied
Gives me all I need

 

…and with dust in throat I crave
Only knowledge will I save
To the game you stay a slave
Rover wanderer
Nomad vagabond
Call me what you will

 

But I’ll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my mind anywhere
And I’ll redefine anywhere
Anywhere I may roam
Where I lay my head is home

 

…and the earth becomes my throne
I adapt to the unknown
Under wandering stars I’ve grown
By myself but not alone
I ask no one

 

…and my ties are severed clean
The less I have the more I gain
Off the beaten path I reign
Rover wanderer
Nomad vagabond
Call me what you will

 

But I’ll take my time anywhere
I’m free to speak my mind anywhere
And I’ll never mind anywhere
Anywhere I may roam
Where I lay my head is home

 

But i’ll take my time anywhere
Free to speak my mind
And I’ll take my find anywhere
Anywhere I may roam
Where I lay my head is home

 

Carved upon my stone
My body lie, but still I roam
Wherever I may roam

 

6. Don’t Tread On Me

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH]

 

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
Never begins it, never, but once engaged…
Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

 

Don’t tread on me

 

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you’ll hear evermore…

 

Don’t tread on me

 

Love it or live it, she with the deadly bite
Quick is the blue tongue, forked as lighting strike
Shining with brightness, always on surveillance
The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

 

Don’t tread on me

 

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you’ll hear evermore…

 

Don’t tread on me

 

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war

 

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling on her tail

 

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you’ll hear evermore…

 

Don’t tread on me

 

7. Through The Never

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH/HAMMET]

 

All that is, was and will be
Universe much too big to see

 

Time and space never ending
Disturbing thoughts, questions pending
Limitations of human understanding
Too quick to criticize
Obligation to survive
We hunger to be alive

 

All that is, ever
Ever was
Will be ever
Twisting
Turning
Through the never

 

In the dark, see past our eyes
Pursuit of truth no matter where it lies

 

Gazing up to the breeze of the heavens
On a quest, meaning, reason
Came to be, how it begun
All alone in the family of the sun
Curiosity teasing everyone
On our home, third stone from the sun

 

All that is, ever
Ever was
Will be ever
Twisting
Turning
Through the never

 

On through the never
We must go
On through the never
Out of the
Edge of forever
We must go
On through the never
Then ever comes

 

All that is, ever
Ever was
Will be ever
Who we are
Ask forever
Twisting
Turning
Through the never

 

Never

 

8. Nothing Else Matters

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH/HAMMET]

 

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

 

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

 

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

 

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

 

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
And nothing else matters

 

Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
But I know

 

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don’t just say
And nothing else matters

 

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
And nothing else matters

 

Never cared for what they say
Never cared for games they play
Never cared for what they do
Never cared for what they know
And I know

 

So close no matter how far
Couldn’t be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
No nothing else matters

 

9. Of Wolf And Man

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH/HAMMET]

 

Off through the new day’s mist I run
Off from the new day’s mist I have come
I hunt
Therefore I am
Harvest the land
Taking of the fallen lamb

 

Off thruogh the new day’s mist I run
Off from the new day’smist I have come
We shift
Pulsing with the earth
Company we keep
Roaming the land while you sleep

 

Shape shift nose to the wind
Shape shift feeling I’ve been
Move swift all senses clean
Earth’s gift back to the meaning of life

 

Bright is the moon high in starlight
Chill is the air cold as steel tonight
We shift
Call of the wild
Fear in your eyes
It’s later than you realized

 

Shape shift nose to the wind
Shape shift feeling I’ve been
Move swift all senses clean
Earth’s gift back to the meaning of life

 

I feel I change
Back to a better day
Hair stands on the back of my neck
In wildness is the preservation of the world

 

So seek the wolf in thyself

 

Shape shift nose to the wind
Shape shift feeling I’ve been
Move swift all senses clean
Earth’s gift
Back to the meaning of wolf and man

 

10. The God That Failed

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH]

 

Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you’d kneel

 

Not the word
Not the love
Not what you thought from above

 

It feeds
It grows
It clouds all that you will know
Deceit
Deceive
Decide just what you believe

 

I see faith in your eyes
Never your hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail

 

Follow the god that failed

 

Find your peace
Find your say
Find the smooth road in your way

 

Trust you gave
A child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

 

It feeds
It grows
It clouds all that you will know
Deceit
Deceive
Decide just what you believe

 

I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail

 

Follow the god that failed

 

I see faith in your eyes
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by the deepened nail

 

Follow the god that failed

 

Pride you took
Pride you feel
Pride that you felt when you’d kneel

 

Trust you gave
A child to save
Left you cold and him in grave

 

I see faith in your eyes
Never you hear the discouraging lies
I hear faith in your cries
Broken is the promise, betrayal
The healing hand held back by deepened nail

 

Follow the god that failed

 

11. My Friend Of Misery

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH/NEWSTED]

 

You just stood there screaming
Fearing no one was listening to you
They say the empty can rattles the most
The sound of your voice must soothe you
Hearing only what you want to hear
And knowing only what you’ve heard
You you’re smothered in tragedy
You’re out to save the world

 

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There’s much more to life than what you see
My friend of misery

 

You still stood there screaming
No one caring about these words you tell
My friend before your voice is gone
One man’s fun is another’s hell
These times are sent to try men’s souls
But something’s wrong with all you see
You you’ll take it on all yourself
Remember, misery loves company

 

Misery
You insist that the weight of the world
Should be on your shoulders
Misery
There’s much more to life than what you see
My friend of misery

 

You just stood there creaming
My friend of misery

 

12. The Struggle Within

 

[HETFIELD/ULRICH]

 

Reaching out for something you’ve got to feel
While clutching to what you had thought was real

 

Kicking at a dead horse pleases you
No way of showing your gratitude
So many things you don’t want to do
What is it? what have you got ot lose

 

What the hell
What is you think you’re gonna find?
Hypocrite
Boredom sets into the boring mind

 

Struggle within it suits you fine
Struggle within your ruin
Struggle within you seal your own coffin
Struggle within the struggling within

 

Home is not a home it becomes a hell
Turning it into your prison cell
Advantages are taken, not handed out
While you struggle inside your hell

 

Reaching out
Grabbing for something tou’ve got to feel
Closing in
The pressure upon you is so real

 

Struggle within it suits you fine
Struggle within your ruin
Struggle within you seal your own coffin
Struggle within the struggling within

 

Reaching out for something you’ve got to feel
While clutching to what you had thought was real
What the hell

 

What is you think you’re gonna find
Hypocrite
Boredom sets into the boring mind

 

Struggle within it suits you fine
Struggle within your ruin
Struggle within you seal your own coffin
Struggle within the struggling within
